|Welcome to the CELT Hub – your ‘one stop shop’ for all things ELT @ DMU
The CELT hub is the main staff support hub for the use of ELT (eLearning) at DMU.
ELT = Enhancing Learning through Technology
WHAT IS ELT?
Using technology for learning and teaching is now widely recognised and embedded in the education sector. It provides many opportunities for enhancing learning and teaching and gives greater flexibility to our learners and our teachers. The purpose of this site is to support staff who wish to use technology in their teaching. It offers comprehensive resources and information on ELT that we support at DMU and news about emerging technologies in the world of ELT.
The Hub is divided into six (6) main sections:
Support Using Technology | QuickGuides | Training and Development | Sharing Practice | Documentation and Policy |
All hyperlinks on The Hub are orange in colour and are underlined. About the CELT Hub
